ECE Without Borders

Industry trends are increasingly pushing our classrooms out of conventional lecture-lab styles and into new spaces. What are the forces facing today's programs? How can ECE lead the trends? What must we do to keep delivering "real world" experiences to prepare our students?  

At Digilent, the company was founded and created to help answer these questions. Learn from Steve Johnson, President of Digilent, about the methods for creating an ECE curriculum that isn't restricted to today's paradigms.
